City of Edinburgh Council

Edinburgh: a capital like no other

450,000 people. One city. Countless opportunities.

Edinburgh is known across the world as Scotland's festival capital, its business capital, its culture capital. The city is home to the Scottish Parliament and some of the most iconic landmarks on the planet. Nearly half a million people call the city home, and we serve each and every one of them, making sure the city is a great place to live, work and enjoy.


Edinburgh is a unique city, a vibrant city, a growing city, an evolving city. It's a city that's at the heart of Europe and the heart of a nation.


And here at The City of Edinburgh Council, we're at the heart of that city. We employ over 19,000 people and are one of the city's leading employers. Our team is as diverse as the services we provide. Services that range from refuse collection to art galleries; parks to planning; schools to social care. Services that matter. Services that people rely on. Services that make the city a great place to be.


The Council has a Recruitment and Selection Policy. The Council is committed to Equal Opportunities and its policies promote the equal treatment of all job applicants and ensure that no one is unfairly treated on any grounds.


If you've got what it takes to help us make Scotland's capital an even better place please look at our current vacancies.
